How Do You Use A Pineapple Melon Baller?

So if you want to know what in the good, green hell ( ha ha ) I am even talking about, it’s basically this, my friends —- how to use a melon baller for pineapples. Yes, did you know you can? It’s true, and you can even gouge out those eye – bits on your pineapples after you have taken off the remainder of its hard flesh, too. It’s all possible, and it’s all a bit of fun. So stick around to learn some. Read on….
Now first of all, I would like to have you know this, my friend —- the “eye - bits” or “eyes” as some like to call them, that I am talking about, are just this : the brown parts on that pineapple. Once those are scooped out with any basic melon - baller, what you are nicely left with are nothing less than those juicy, sweet parts of the pineapple. The nice and tender parts.
Keep in mind ( just for future reference, I would add, he he heh ) that you CAN eat the brown eyes but they do not taste as well. Yet it won’t hurt you or anything to eat them. Now, the melon – baller is useful here in cleaning things up, so to speak, in the very sense that it can help your pineapple, all in all, be less fibrous in the end… but rather more fruity and yellow – ish, as a whole. What you do, first of all, is this — wash up the pineapple and place it on a tray or cutting board ; then cut it up into slices as you normally see them do on cooking shows, he he heh…. like with a knife, cutting rounded layers off and tossing away the top and bottom cuts of the pineapple. And from there, you can use a thin baller to then scoop balls from those slices ( make sure they’re thick and meaty, rounded slices ). That’s one way to do it.
The other way, I would add, would be this : You can just cut off the top third of the pineapple with your knife, leaving the rest of the juicy, meaty pineapple intact. You can then proceed to just place the baller directly over the top of the pineapple, where you have just cup an opening into… and sink that baller in there, flesh – deep. Pull it out, and you will have a nice, pineapple ball ready at your disposal. Make sure that you scoop in angles and try to keep the baller itself at least relatively flat against the pineapple’s flesh where you are scooping / cutting into.
That’s it, folks! It’s as easy peezy as lemon squeezy, as I like to say. Or should I say pineapple squeezy? He heh.
